Building Information Models and Model Views – Part 3

Apr 01, 2009

Part 1 of this article (published in the Fall 2007 issue of JBIM) provided some history about building information modeling (BIM), and ended by introducing information delivery manuals (IDMs) and model view definitions (MVDs) as parts of a process for realizing software interoperability. Part 2 of this article (published in Fall 2008) provided more detail about a standard process and toolset for developing BIM based solutions called the IFC Solutions Factory.In this third installment of the series, we will look at the Solution Factory artifacts for a project organized, funded, and managed by the US Government Services Administration (GSA), the buildingSMART alliance™ (bSa) and the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC).
